First Friday Artwalks get new website

This Friday, June 7 is the evening for Artwalks across Maine. It’s a wonderful opportunity for a family evening outing, a cool date, or just a chance to catch up with friends and see something stimulating in real life that’s not just on a screen.
Artwalks are taking place Friday in Bangor, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, Belfast, Boothbay Harbor and East Boothbay Harbor, Rockland, Portland.

A new website called Artwalk Maine keeps tabs of each town’s dates and provides downloadable walking maps. According to the website, “Maine’s ArtWalks are an intersection of Maine’s contemporary art scene, its historic downtowns, and the natural world. It is a chance to discover artists of island communities, urban centers and revitalized mills and see the fine craftsmanship for which Maine is known is on view year round. Local restaurants are open. Performances happen, whether their stage is a theater, sidewalk or town green. ArtWalk communities roll out the red carpet for you.
Traditionally held monthly on Friday evenings from 5-8pm, several Maine ArtWalks take place on Saturday afternoons. Schedules vary. Use this site to plan your vacation or rediscover your own neighborhood.” For more information visit
